Samsung Says Phooey to 1080p, Goes 4x Better with Quad HD


After boring us to tears with matters of little import at a jam-packed press event at CES, behind the scenes, Samsung was prepping the real stuff. Top of the list: A Quad HD TV with a rez of 3840x2160, twice as sharp vertically and horizontally as today's best 1080p sets.

2160p? I bet it looks amazing, but it would be a little unfair to the consumer IMO. 1080p hasn't even become the standard yet, with HD broadcasting still only being able to display in 1080i/720p.

But still, I'd love to see what it looks like in that high of a resolution, Samsung's are my favorite HDTV's.


sony is already exploring this territory in ultra high def displays.

yeah but think computer monitor... this would be perfect.

i thought the human eye couldn't notice any better than 1080p?

socomnick4565d ago

human eye can see like something like 200+ megapixels so yes it can see better than 1080p.

oh,thnx. guess i heard wrong. so will there be a noticable difference, like 1008p vs 720p

50 Gig Blu-ray disc = 1080P movie with extra content
200 Gig Blu-ray disc = 2160P movie with extra content

Only possible with Blu-ray BTW.

And I know that they haven't -*actually*- reached 200 gigs yet. Just sayin' though.

My exact thought. Bubbles for you

Yeah, uh, I'm happy with 1080p.

spammy_nooo4565d ago

I know, right?

I, personally, am happy with 720p(that's the best set I have.)

1080p does look better, but after a while its just not worth the money.

ofcourse you are... don't worry in no time Sony will announce a higher resolution for their TV or something and you will be all over it.

Later this year Microsoft will drop the 360 at Christmas and go with the new xbox console; Xbox Revolution.

The only thing MSFT will let you carry over will be your XBL account and the system will have no backwards compatability.

Wait a second! This scenario sounds like November 2005!

Go away troll.
